Known issues
FAQ:
Q) Will PlateBuffs work on mobs?
A) Yes. but since mobs can share the same name you'll need to target or mouseover the nameplate so PlateBuffs can determine which nameplate belongs to what mob. Once that nameplate disappears from the screen and reappears you'll need to mouseover/target again.
Q) What's the question mark for?
A) It can mean 2 things. 1) We don't know what mob that nameplate belongs to, 2) We don't know what spells are on that mob/player. In both cases you need to target/mouseover the nameplate.
Q) Will PB work with non default nameplates?
A) PB should work with Tidy Plates, Aloft, dNameplates and caelNameplates. PB may or may not work with other nameplate addons.
Q) Can I have specific buff options?
A) Yes. Open PlateBuff's options (/pb) and go to the Specific Spells menu. In there you can add spells and choose always/mine/never show, icon size and cooldown text size. Some spells are added by default to have large icons.
Q) Why do spells blink?
A) Spells will blink if there's less then 20% of the time remaining.
Q) Can you add a clockwise cooldown overlay to the spell icons?
A) Unfortunately the clock cooldown doesn't work well on frames that are constantly moving around the screen. It tends to disappear while the frame's moving and only appear when the icon's perfectly still. So as soon as you move, they move or your camera moves (including breathing up and down motion) the overlay disappears. Sorry.
Q) What do all these spells in the Specific Spells list do?
A) If you're unfamiliar on what spells do what effects, enable the Add Spell Description option on the main screen. That will add a spell icon and spell description to each of the spells. When enabled, PlateBuffs' memory usage will go up around 2MB (memory usage only impacts login/load time, not FPS).
Q) How do I turn off all buffs except those on my Specific Spells list?
A) In PlateBuffs' options, set both "Show Buffs" and "Show Debuffs" to none.

been playing with your addon (i really like it), but i have noticed an odd occurrence.

seems like, with your addon enabled in conjunction with Aloft, nameplate unit names (as a text region on the nameplate) seem to flicker, or get hidden. doesn't happen with all nameplates, but it does seem to happen to those that experience spell cast activity while visible. targeting the associated unit brings the unit name back, then it disappears again. bouncing nameplates (hiding nameplates and then showing them again, with a keyboard shortcut) seems to "fix" the problem, at least temporarily.

it "goes away" (i.e. i cannot induce this) when your addon is disabled. i have not yet tried leaving your addon enabled, with Blizzard default nameplates, and trying to reproduce this. i thought i would let you know, in case something in your code popped out at you as an "obvious" cause for this.

i "advertised" your addon in my addon's comments (at least for the Ace3 version of Aloft). i am going to go ask my users to watch for this problem. maybe we can figure out whether it is "your" problem or "mine".

f you notice anything specific in your work that you feel resolves this, let me know, and i will do the same. (i have considered hooking the OnShow/OnHide handlers for this nameplate text region, and doing a debugstack() to see if Aloft is in the call stack anywhere when it happens; have not had a chance to do this yet.)

update: seems to reproduce reliably on the current target nameplate (with both Aloft and PlateBuffs enabled).

update: does not happen with just Aloft enabled, and does not happen with just PlateBuffs enabled. probably a SetText hook snafu, which is probably caused by Aloft. i will look into it. still, if you see anything, let me know.

I don't normally run Aloft so I've never seen the bug.
I'll run Aloft and see what I find.

edit: I found the blinking name bug. It's due to LibNameplate hiding the name region thinking it's the mouseover region. It does this to prevent false positives in the mouseover GUID detection.
You can reproduce this bug by disabling all your addons (or just PlateBuffs) and placing your mouse ontop of a nameplate, then hold down right-click and move your camera away. The nameplate's mouseover region will stay lit up and that causes problems when trying to figure out which nameplate the users really mousing over. So the Lib hides the mouseover region if no mouseover unitID exists.

To fix this blinking name bug I'm going to check if aloft is running, if so I'll use frame.aloftData.highlightTexture instead of the frame:GetRegions() call.

edit2: I just uploaded 1.2.2beta. I think the blinking name bug is fixed.

thanks so much for this, it's exactly what I've been wanting.

I'm using this with Tidy Plates, Clean Plates and Threat Plates theme.

Currently the PlateBuffs are not very accurate. Sometimes it would show the debuffs that are on my current target on another mob of same type but that I have not touched or even aggroed.

On my DK, it also showed the extended duration of my diseases as if I had Epidemic talented (diseases duration extended to 21), but I did not and it should have been only 14 seconds. This was the duration on other mobs that I hit with Pestilience and not my main target.

PlateBuffs also often doesn't show any of the debuffs on my primary target, instead showing only on other mobs.

So far these are the issues. I like this mod and it's something I've been looking for, but because it's not stable or accurate most of the time, it's not as reliable as I hoped.

Is it possible to at least improve the primary target accuracy? Since I'm targetting the mob, it should be most accurate with durations on it, not the least.

First off loving the addon! Second have a question for ya

I have managed to change the font to that in which I want but I still have yet to find the code, and or change code properly to switch the border on the buff/debuff frames. Could you please point me to the right area of code to make this change as the current buff/debuff border just does not fit my UI at all ?

Thanks in advance for both the help, and the addon!

in frames.lua. xxx.border is the border texture. at the bottom of iconOnShow() you can comment out the border code so a border doesn't get shown.
It should look the same as the default target frame's debuff border. I'm sorry if it's not working for you.

Have you tried overwriting the GetNumChildren method for every nameplate you edit and making it always return 2?

Never thought about it. It would fix Skinner not skinning but it may cause problems for other addons. PB works on non-default nameplates and I don't want to interfere with them too much.

congratulation for this addon, i find it very usefull in arenas.

here is my question: is there a way to view ONLY 4 debuff?
explanation: i want to see only druid HoT like Lifebloom, Rejuvenation, Regrowth, Wild Growth.
this would be very nice to switch in arena to a player without hot -> more chanche to kill.

thanks mate
ps: sorry for my bad english
